EthicsComplianceHub :: Bucharest, 2017
September 28, 2017 | 09.30.-13.00. | Musat & Associates HQ
In 2016, Centre for Advanced Research in Management and Applied Ethics launched a series of events for people working in Ethics & Compliance or collateral fields (from Anti-Fraud and Risk Management to Internal Audit and Sustainability). It was 10 years later from the first steps taken in Romania and by Romanian specialists to build a professional community. This event is a continuation of that initiative and we hope you will join our efforts to promote integrity in the private, public and civil sectors.
Employee’s Right to Privacy and Labour Legislation
Dreptul angajaților la viață privată și legislația muncii
Anca VĂTĂȘOIU | Managing Associate (Mușat & Associates)
The main focus of the presentation will be on the ECHR solution recently issued in the case of Barbulescu vs. Romania, specifically the principles evoked by such forum in relation to the monitoring of employees’ activity by the employer and their practical applicability going forward. The presentation would also tackle the debate around the employer’s options to undergo controls or tests on employees at the workplace (e.g. drug/ alcohol tests, controls of belongings/ cabinets at company premises). The topics will primarily focus on recent case law of relevant courts and practical examples from the business environment.
Punctul principal de interes al prezentarii va fi solutia CEDO pronunata recent in cazul Barbulescu c. Romania, in mod special principiile evocate de acest forum in legatura cu monitorizarea activitatii salariatilor de catre angajator si aplicabilitatea practica a acestora in viitor. Prezentarea va aborda, de asemenea, si dezbaterea din jurul optiunilor angajatorului de a controla sau testa salariatii la locul de munca (e.g. teste anti-alcool/ anti-drog, controlarea bunurilor personale/ dulapurilor de la sediul societatii). Temele de discutie se vor concentra pe jurisprudenta recenta a instantelor relevante si pe exemple practice din mediul de afaceri.

Non-Financial Reporting for Romanian SOEs: Challenges and Suggestions
Raportarea non-financiară pentru companiile cu capital de stat din România: provocări și sugestii
Cristian DUCU, PhD | Senior Ethics & Compliance and Sustainability Consultant (CARMAE)
In 2014, EC and CONS reached a difficult compromise on the enhancement of corporate transparency on non-financial information and gender balance, and published Directive 2014/95/EU. At the end of 2016, Romania transposed this directive in a very strict way, while at the same time adopted a new National Anti-Corruption Strategy, which includes the obligation of non-financial reporting for all Romanian state-owned enterprises (SEOs). Earlier, new corporate governance standards for SOEs were adopted by the Romanian Government. This presentation will highlight some of the challenges related to these legal obligations and will provide some suggestions on how to map the reporting process, how to select the consultant, and how to communicate the results and the commitment to improve.
In 2014, Comisia Europeana si Consiliul au ajuns la un compromis asupra cresterii transparentei corporative in materie de informatii non-financiare si egalitate de gen si au publicat Directiva 2014/95/EU. La finalul lui 2016, Romania a transpus aceasta directiva intr-o maniera stricta si in acelasi timp a adoptat o noua Strategie Nationala Anti-Coruptie care include obligatia raportarii non-financiare pentru toate companiile cu capital de stat din Romania. Cu ceva timp inainte, noi standarde in materie de guvernare corporativa aplicabile companiilor cu capital de stat fusesera adoptate de Guvernul Romaniei. Aceasta prezentare va scoate in evidenta cateva provocari legat de aceste obligatii si va oferi cateva sugestii privind maparea procesului de raportare, selectarea consultantului, precum si comunicarea rezultatelor si a angajamentului de a le imbunatatii.
